    Frustrating little problem -- I push the remote's button to unlock the
    doors and the lock arms pop up.

    HOWEVER <:-( this is when the problem occurs. The mechanism is just
    far up so that the door is ulocked but pulling on the outside handle
    causes the lock to re-engage.

    Result: door is partially open but door lock is now engaged. Pushing
    door fully closed does not work.

    Repeated pushing of the unlock button on teh remote eventually gets the
    latch to pop up and stay up long enough for me to get the door open.

    No other door on the car has this problem.

    Comments and suggestions?
